ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan on Friday congratulated Pakistani exporters for achieving "record exports" during the month of December 2020, Geo News reported. 

Taking to Twitter, the prime minister — pleased at the performance of Pakistan's exports for the month of December 2020 — revealed that the country's exports had registered a growth of 18% over the previous year.

"Well done & keep up this trend. A major pillar of our govt's economic policy is export enhancement & we will provide full support to promote export culture," he added.

Earlier last month, Adviser to the Prime Minister on Commerce Razak Dawood had announced that Pakistan's exports had crossed the $2bn mark for a second consecutive time in November.

The commerce adviser had said that exports increased by 7.2% year-on-year in November, according to the provisional figures received by the government.

"We have just received provisional figures for export of goods. I wish to congratulate our exporters that in these very difficult times with resurgence of COVID-19 cases in Pakistan and globally, our exports have increased by 7.2% in November 2020 over the same period last year," he had tweeted.
